My first pair of longies!

Weeeeee! They are DONE! Sorry Brandy, I was going for the stripes, but the orange came out waaaayyyy different than the previous so I stuck to green! :P

Soooo, I 'fixed' the gaps from the kitchener part, but hey, I still can't believe I managed to do it! There are still little gaps [barely noticeable] from the short rows. And, I went one more round and didn't notice until I bound off on the cuffs. Oh well! I am sooo happy I actually finished them.

And here is the proud model! Such a sweet guy! He kept trying to show them off and posing. Then, daddy put him in another set of pants and he came to me and asked to wear the knitted ones again.

Man, I never knew how amazing that would feel. Sorry, mom, for all the times I didn't like what you made.

Now, I am off to make a few hats and mittens for X-mas gifts. Well, a couple of those are not for such. One is for a 'welcome' to a different land gift and the other is another type of 'welcome' (to the world). I am excited, but I hope I manage one of them in time, b/c the other one has been there a while now and I'm not done yet. Wow, lots of code, no matter. *I* know what I mean, LMAO!

The pattern was the Aubrey Doodle Pants - I found it great! The wool was Knit Picks Bare, hand-dyed with Kool Aid (orange and lime). Lots of fun!

I can't say enough about that yarn. It is sooooo soft and it's not even Merino and such a nice neutral bone color (that I left some when I dyed it). Max has not complained at all about it being scratchy or anything. And so easy to knit. (Update> the sweet kid asks for them as the 'pants you makes mami. wear zose' -can you hear my heart shattering?!)

Anyway, enough rambling. Just wanted to share I'm glad I'm done! :) Thanks for looking/reading whoever does, lol!
